The subject focuses on constructional materials for structural engineering applications and is divided into three components:
In the material science component, basic concepts on inter-atomic bonding, microstructure of solids and generic material properties related to density, deformation, yield, ductility, fracture, toughness, susceptibility to corrosion and fatigue are introduced. In the constructional materials component, the engineering applications of structural and light-gauge steel, concrete, masonry, timber, glass, fibre-glass and composites will be covered. In the mechanics component, the basic concepts of stress-strain compatibility, composite actions, the concept of shear stress flow, basic two-dimensional stress analysis, strength and ductility and arching actions are covered
On completion of this subject students should be able to:
